EX Model: YMT-05 Hildolfr English Manual & Color Guide

EX Model YMT-05 Hildolfr English Translation Color Guide & Manual

An old kit by Bandai that came out in 2007 is the Hildolfr. The storyline of the Hildolfr was one of the tragic but truly great episodes from MS IGLOO. The Hildolfr is an experimental high speed hybrid tank whose upper half has the torso and hands of a mobile suit.

In the story it was sent to earth for testing but upon reaching its test area came into contact with Earth Federation forces using captured Zaku II mobile suits. A fight of course ensued and that's where the story became epic, go watch if you still haven't seen it.

The 1/144 EX Model YMT-05 Hildolfr is selling for $86.74 at Amazon, 4983 yen at Amiami, 6800 yen at HobbyLink Japan.

If I'm reading the manual correctly, the kit comes with decals for the Semovente group from the Earth Federation that can be fitted onto a 1/144 HGUC Zaku II so that you can recreate the fight scene between them and the Hildolfr. The kit doesn't come with the Zaku II, you have to buy it separately, there is however the color guide included in the manual.
